Professional freeskier Jen Hudak takes us first hand into today's progression of women's freeskiing at the Nine Queens event held in Fiss Austria.
About Nine Queens:
Three years ago Nico Zacek, Germany’s number one freeski pro innovated the freeskiing world with an original event concept. The idea was simple: Nico built a distinctive jump obstacle and brought together the best athletes, photographers and film crews from all over the world and offered them perfect setting. From this winning formula NINE KNIGHTS was born and only three years later it has developed into one of the most anticipated freeski events in the world.
This big success was the reason why Nico thought about a female edition of his medieval spectacle. Who else could be the host of a NINE QUEENS Freeski event if not his good friend and Völkl team mate Virginie Faivre from Switzerland? Virginie, the current FIS- halfpipe world champion and repeated winner of the European Open, is now looking forward to inviting some of the best female freeskiers like Sarah Burke, Kaya Turski, Grete Eliasson, and Eva Patscheider to their contest highlight of the year. From March 21th to 25th the great skiing resort of Serfaus-Fiss-Ladis in Tyrol (Austria) will be the host location for the NINE QUEENS chateau, a unique jump- and jib feature, built by the Schneestern crew who also built all NINE KNIGHTS obstacles. Some outstanding photographers and film crews will be on hand to record the best that the world’s female freeskiing royalty has to offer.
